MURAL is now offered free for all to use. 

Now every team can experience MURAL for as long as they need to learn the product, try new methods, and have their first magical collaboration sessions in MURAL.

You can get your free forever MURAL workspace right now.

From knowledge worker to imagination worker

Eight years ago, I was demoing an early version of MURAL to an innovation team in a large healthcare company. After the demo I saw a woman staring with a hint of awe, so I asked what she thought about the solution. She replied, “We are always getting demos of grey software. This is so … colorful!”

This reflection was both literal and figurative. People need to be freed from a world of dull presentation slides and relentlessly boring meetings. They need more exciting and fun ways of working together. Teams need a better way to imagine.

In a call or in person, you see and hear your team. With MURAL, you see what they mean.

MURAL is in the business of embracing imagination, play, and peer-based collaboration in a stifling world of routines and hierarchies. For over ten years and with a wonderful group of tireless MURAListas, we have built a platform that tens of thousands of teams at iconic companies like SAP, IBM, Microsoft, Facebook, USAA, Procter & Gamble, and Thoughtworks rely on to imagine better. Guided by the heroic efforts of facilitators and team leaders, these teams have embraced a way to collaborate that is as productive as it is playful, a way that transforms teamwork. 

What does transformation look like? It looks like developing company strategy, product roadmaps, and OKRs, all by collaborating visually in a guided way. It’s brainstorming, synthesizing ideas, plus building alignment, teamwork and trust. MURAL offers the space, methods, and expert help to make teamwork come alive.

With MURAL Free, now all teams can experience this different way of working together.

From one team transforming teamwork with MURAL to your entire organization.
A magical experience with your team begins a journey — that transforms teamwork at your organization.
